  2. Non-Sophos WNIC Support

    Some core functionality for other wireless chipsets should be provided, even if it isn't "guaranteed perfect".

    For example, ath9k (Atheros) drivers ship with XG, but cannot be loaded because of a version conflict with a dependency. Atheros chipsets are the most compatible with other linux, and considered to be "100%". The code is all there, and being used in production by other manufacturers.

    Sophos XG Home isn't usable in my circumstance because it doesn't support common wireless chipsets, which is needed in my home. Purchasing a Sophos wireless appliance is possible for my company, but not for me at home!

  3. Wireless: Log device connection events with MAC to syslog

    We did logging configuration with syslog for the model Sophos SG85W but mac addresses of Wi-Fi connected devices can not be seen in the logs.

    This feature is important for filtering specific devices. Could you please add mac addresses of the devices in the logs.

  4. Wireless Site Survey

    I think you can do it on Sophos Cloud, but the ability to upload and mark on on a floor plan where all the access points are, and do site surveys.

  5. Mixing Wireless Client Traffic Types

    I want to be able to add all my wireless networks to all my access points.
    Currently I cannot mix "Bridge to AP LAN" and "Bridge to VLAN" on the same access point which I could easily do on other wireless systems.

  6. HotSpot logging

    hotspot

    HotSpot feature lacks logging capabilities.

    For example it would be great to autmatically map and log voucher code with IP address of user that was using it and create reports based on this.
    Without this it's impossible to audit what traffic was generated by that user.

    Same issue is with UTM:

  7. Rogue access point detection

    The Sophos XG firewalls should be able to detect rogue access points with APs connected the same way the models with built in wireless do.

  8. Sophos Access Points to remain working even if XG is unreachable

    The downside we have identified for Sophos APs is that if a remote office with Sophos APs is connected to head-office XG via VPN and everything routes through the VPN, when connectivity is lost, the APs go offline and the remote offices cannot even access their local devices (e.g. printers / local NAS) via WiFi.
    This makes a WAN issue into a much larger impact as the remote offices are unable to work effectively.

    This request is that when XG is not reachable by the AP, it will fallback into an admin defined mode. e.g. if normal mode is bridged…

  9. Configure delay to redirect to URL after Wireless login

    The time it takes after the user logs into the wireless hotspot to redirect them to a URL is too long. It would be great to have a option to enter in how many second before it should redirect to another URL. Editing the HTML to change the seconds before redirecting is very daunting and it should be just an option.

  10. Ending a wireless session

    There is currently no way to see a wireless session and disconnect that person or device from their wireless session. Good security feature for blocking a device or the devices MAC address of that device.

  11. Guest User Management

    We have observed that we can manually create guest users in Sophos XG Firewall, under

    Objects > Identity > Guest Users
    or
    System > Authentication > Guest Users

    The Following Two Things Need To Be Taken Care Of.

    1) After creating the user, in the edit mode, the administrator is not able to edit the guests cell phone number.

    2) Once we trigger print, for the Guest User Credentials, there should have been a provision to add the Company Logo on the Print Out.

    3) Also comments and Instructions that the Administrator would manually enter, which should be printed on…

  12. Use IP range or network object for allowable Radius accounting requests

    customer got a Meraki Wireless network and basically each WAP processes the request and then would need to forward the accounting request to the Sophos firewall. So without using IP range or cidr they need to enter 150 ips individually.

    If ip range or cidr option is available then It will let then to do radius accounting on wireless network without
    having to put in 150+ radius clients.
